Since the autumn of 2022 this year's Borealis Ung Komponist participants Eline Rafteseth, Guoste Tamulynaite, Luke Drozd and Susanne Xin have worked together with their mentors Camille Norment, Lo Kristenson and Øyvind Torvund to create new soundscapes and to challenge themselves as music makers. With focus on learning from each other, and collectively exploring what it means to write music for others and how to communicate, this year's four pieces represent four unique voices, but also a collective creative energy. With backgrounds spanning composition and visual art, impro jazz and performance the four participants have challenged themselves and each other to present new music for YrrY – vocalist Mari Galambos Grue, percussionists Owen Weaver and Håkon Skjæret and cellist Carmen Bóveda. The concert in Borealis 2023 finalises their Borealis Ung Komponist journey but marks the beginning of their individual paths into the experimental music world.
